In New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this creature.

"Spotted garden eels get their name from the black spots on their otherwise white bodies. They nest in the sandy seafloor and poke their heads out to catch the plankton drifting in the current. They're rather shy, as they quickly dart back into their hole at the slightest hint of danger."
